As long as it took your mom and your boyfriend to finish last nigh! Some people love to give stupid answers. Depending on the size of the room, half an hour to an hour. Getting furniture out of the way will probably take most of the time. Not out of the room, just away from the walls.

If you are going to post homework questions, please give us all the details so we can help you get the answer.. Re read the problem & divide the total yards moved by the total fuel used & that is the answer.
A square foot is 12" x 12" space. You have 4 ea of 6"x6" tiles in a square foot.
If the tiles measure 12 inches square then the area of each tile is 1 sq foot. Therefore 1400 tiles are needed to cover an area of 1400 square feet. However, the actual dimensions of the area being tiled can affect the number of tiles required so closer examination is needed.

It is best to remove the wall tiles. You need a flat service and a lot of times old tile will not be perfectly flat. If you remove the tiles you will have a good base to tile on. If you don't want to remove the tiles you may be able to add a backer board on top of the old tile and then tile on that.
